“Cascade Platinum delivers Cascade’s ultimate clean for dishes.” That’s the line I got from my friends at Double Duty Divas when they asked me to try it out. They said to cook some food, and then let the dishes sit, unrinsed, overnight, and invite friends over the next day for a “Mommy Playdate”. They said Cascade Platinum combined with the Cascade Rinse Aid would get the dishes “immaculately clean”. They said to even run the dishwasher in front of my guests to prove how great Cascade would work. They said the dishes would be sparkling clean. I was wary, but remember how I HAVE NO TIME TO CLEAN. Yeah. So I tried it. And guess what? They were right!
Cascade Platinum got my dishes clean. Even a baked-on brownie pan and starchy mac-n-cheese bowl got clean! I learned that Cascade Platinum is designed to deliver immaculate dishes without rinsing and even help keep the dishwasher clean. And it’s totally true that it even works on 24-hour stuck-on food! This brownie dish and utensils are the proof.
I love that Cascade Platinum allows me to skip the pre-wash. Cascade Platinum actually works best when food soil is left on the dishes because its special enzymes latch onto that food, breaking it down so it can wash away. If there’s no food soil, there’s nothing for the enzymes to attach to and the detergent isn’t working its hardest for you. And I want my detergent (and everyone/thing around me) to work hard for me.
I was happy to hear that I didn’t have to worry about any of the food left on the dishes damaging my dishwasher or pipes. I had no idea that there is a garbage disposal built into the bottom of almost all dishwashers (including mine) that works exactly like the disposal in my sink.
I was happy some of the moms from my Atlanta Mocha Moms chapter got to check out Cascade Platinum in action, while trying some of my delicious brownies and not-so-delicious homemade mac-n-cheese. (I should have used whole milk and real butter. Sigh.) But my punch went over well! And everyone loves leaving with some swag.
